Mixed Veggie Coconut Rice

This recipe was given by my mom who mentioned that she came across this easy variety rice preparation in some television. Since she was not sure which TV programme it was, I could not mention it in the post. Anyways, the recipe sure have lots of variations as per my taste. Try it and let me know how much you enjoyed it.

  • Whole garam masala
  • salt - as req
  • Basmati rice - 1 cup
  • Coconut milk - 1.5 cup
  • Veggies of your choice - finely cut
  • Corriander leaves for garnish
  • Garlic pods - 4 or 5
Basmati Rice : Coconut Milk = 1 cup : 1.5 cup


To heated oil in pressure cooker, add whole garam masala(cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, cinnamon) and saute till you get some nice aroma from it. Now add the veggies of your choice. I added finely cut carrots, beans, peas and corn. Adding veggies to the rice is completely optional. You can also skip the veggies and go for juz the coconut rice which still tastes heavenly. Once the added veggies are cooked, add whole or sliced garlic pods. Now add Basmati Rice and saute it with the veggies for a couple of minutes. Time to add the main ingredient. Add coconut milk, req salt and then close the pressure cooker. Leave for 2-3 whistles and then switch off the flame. Once the pressure leaves from the cooker, open the cooker and garnish the rice with some finely chopped coriander leaves.

This rice was a hit at my house and also scored full 10 points from hubby dear. So I highly recommend for this recipe. You wud sure go with me, even before you taste the rice, yeah, when the wonderful aroma of the rice fills the entire room. Do try this variety rice and let me know your comments.
